However, even his exquisite goals-to-game ratio isn’t enough to impress former England striker Michael Owen, who criticised the Sweden star after United’s win against Zorya in the Europa League last night.
Ibrahimovic scored the only goal of the game, handing United a narrow 1-0 victory over the Ukrainian side.
But Owen insists he wasn’t impressed by the 34-year-old, blasting him for his lack of movement and implying he has a lazy side to his game.
Speaking to BT Sport, Owen said: “His movement disappoints me a bit.
“He just stands a lot. Because of his height he gets away with it.”
Owen, who spent three years at Old Trafford before joining Stoke and retiring in 2013, added:
“There was no movement from him. He just tends to stand at the back post and wait for the ball. There were a few crosses tonight and he stayed in the same position.”
Is Owen being a bit harsh here on a striker who is widely considered one of the greatest in the game?
Or does Ibra need to offer more to Jose Mourinho’s side?
